If it were a bot, I could assign it a token from the ACP. I am creating a third party application that interfaces with NodeBB. It needs to be able to inherently create new user accounts, and then also login as them (which is where logging in via a token would come into play). I suppose it would be possible to create an account via a socket connection directly, but I imagine I could have uses to some of the write API methods anyways.
Is it possible to programmatically create user tokens for the Write API? If that's the case, I could use a socket to create the account, and then generate a JWT token specifically for that user rather than hacking something into the application itself. That would leave the only hurdle being logging in, but at that point I could just store encrypted login credentials in a config file, and login to the API using https://github.com/NicolasSiver/nodebb-plugin-ns-login
I'd like to export a list of the users and their emails from a specific group. Is there a way to do this? And if not, is there a way to export all users, but add more fields to the list besides username and email address?
Hi @mikewa, we don't have a plugin that allows NodeBB to act as the OAuth2 provider, but I'm interested in creating one if you're interested.
Reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll be happy to discuss further
We did have one in the past, although it is likely not working anymore.
In communities where we participated heavily, but didn't run the community ourselves, we used to build tooling that would go post by post and pull out some of this data and record date-time and poster of different posts and threads to track how people would post over time.
Sorry for necromancy but I have exactly the same problem as @shri to change sidebar bootstrap properties...
With the latest nodebb version, do I need to do the same hack modifying directly the widget.js code ?
Thanks for taking the time to reply. That might be a part of what I'm aiming for.
I want to create an array of topics that I can display in my "feed". Those topics can be added to the array by two reasons.
It's a recently created topic.
It contains recent posts. (So maybe I can use tour suggestion here)
The idea is just to have the new content presented when you first log in. I could look at Recent and Popular I think.
Once again, thank you!
